Perfect Wine and Service

We were drinking two classes of Wine after a very hot summer day. The waitresses were tired as we were but they kept friendly and charming. We got a basket of chips and olives for free while drinking our wine. It was more than enough also to eat! They are serving local wine which was really... read more

This wine bar/restaurant is situated in a quiet part of Lucca near the Cathedral of San Martino. The food is delicious and the wine list one of the best we have ever found. Prices are modest and service calm, efficient and friendly. It is recommended as a gentle alternative to the hectic side of Lucca for dinner or one of... More

Enoteca Calasto is a small bar/restaurant that gives a warm “canape” welcome to all guests, even if only there for a drink. Delicious and a great idea. The restaurant has a good menu and excellent staff, who make the visitor feel most at home. It is situated across from the Church of San Giovanni, in the centre of Lucca, which... More

We booked a Lucchesi wine tour through E. Calasto and it was a tremendous day. Lars, the owner, was a gracious host and took us to two great vineyards in the area for wonderful tours. The hosts were all very nice people, the vineyards incredibly beautiful, and the wines surprisingly top notch. We have eaten at this enoteca before and... More

Chose to eat here based on trip advisor guide best places to eat in Lucca. Waiter took us menus, some nice looking choices so we took some time deliberating about 8 choices on the main course. After deciding the waiter came to take our order and as we ordered we were told that they had run out of 4 of... More

Found through Trip Advisor and all the nice words well deserved! Off Main Street located serving very good Italian food with a smile. Our lunch was supported by good local beer. The restaurant also appears as a wine bar.

Not only is Enoteca Calasto a destination unto itself -- fabulous wines, delicious nibbles and live music on Fridays -- the wine tour run by the owner Lars is a perfect way to spend a day in Tuscany. We visited two spectacular vineyards, sampled wines and olive oils, then culminated the tour with a late lunch at the Enoteca. All... More

My brother and I took the wine tour to cap off our trip through Europe and it was easily one of the highlights of the whole vacation. Lars picked us up from the train station and was an excellent guide for the whole day. He drove us, along with one other couple, to two wineries, and we finished the tour... More

Stopped in here prior to seeing the daily opera and had an excellent cheese plate, pasta, and entree. We were both very satisfied with our meals - thanks TA community for the recommendation and suggestions for entrees! We also ordered great wines by the glass which is nice to be able to do!

Stopped here for a late lunch with my husband and 11 year old son after reading the reviews. Lovely wine by the glass. Excellent bruschetta for my son with beautifully ripe tomatoes and the tortelli and lasagne for my husband and I respectively. Both pasta dishes were really very tasty. The service was good and the owner (who was British)... More
